For what it's worth as an idea, OpenQueue supports a value for initial
backlog of messages.  If 0, you get just new messages since your
subscription started.  If -1, you get all the old messages. If 5, you get
the last 5 messages before you started.  The motivation was for scrolling
headline news in an applet, so you are guaranteed to see some headlines
without waiting.  (For a demo, see http://www.newsblip.com/applet.php3)
